Here’s an interesting sidenote about this comic strip. I showed it to Darren Rowse, A.K.A ProBlogger
to get his opinion of it since he was the original name that I used in this comic and I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t offensive to him in any manner. Well, he confirmed that it was fine and that it didn’t bother him in the least. However, he made an interesting comment when he said “You know, he kinda looks more like Seth Godin”. Well, shoot, I thought. Of course it does! So, off I went to double-check and here’s what I found.

First, here’s Darren Rowse A.K.A ProBlogger.

and here’s Seth Godin A.K.A The Marketing Guru (as advertised on his website) next to the comic Seth

By George, I think ProBlogger was right!

While having lunch without my trusty laptop and its aircard, I rather enjoyed being outside with a new book I’ve been meaning to read. It was a pleasant change of pace being “offline” and “disconnected” from the world for a brief period of time. Sure, I still had my Blackberry but I turned it off and pretended to be in 1991. Ah, ignorance is indeed bliss!
I got to thinking that this might become a regular routine for me and wondered how many others felt the same way.

Then I had the idea to do a new installment for my I.T. Happens comic strip regarding this notion of being offline and perhaps antisocial. How many would join a network of people who are tired of always being connected and socialable?
I know, antisocial types wouldn’t want to belong to any network. 🙂

Anyway, I just think it’s a good thing to be Net free sometimes and get our head out of the cloud (among other places).
Get some fresh air (without any Adobe or Macbooks)!

By the way, after sharing my thoughts on this on utterz, someone shared the following link:
